What does 'Survey Requested' mean?

Survey Requested

When the lender who is providing the funds for the mortgage requests a survey this is usually sent to a panel which farms the work out to the surveyors that the panel believes would be right for the job or have time to do the job. The panel will offer the work to a surveyor at which point it becomes known as 'Survey requested'. If the surveyor accepts the work the status becomes 'Survey Instructed'. Once he has booked a time with the agent or owner to visit the property the status becomes 'Survey Booked'.
